It so happened that all the hos pital facilities in France at present are devoted to military purposes, and a8 n result Mr. Watson was taken to the nearest military Red Cross hos pital, which was at Ypres, around which some of the fiercest fighting of the war has raged. He was confined ia the hospital at Ypres for thirty five days, and upon his dlscharpe vent immediately to London, from which point he finally managed to reach his destination In Scotland.' During his convalescence at the Ypres hospital Mr. Watson collected a number of most interesting souve nirs, which he brought back with him, and gained first-hand informa tion regarding the war which fewpeo pie in this country possess. The im presslon gained by him as a result of his observations is that the .war w ill never be determined one way or j South the other on the actual fighting strength of the contending armies, but Hist the struggle will develop Into one of resources and endurance. llr.

But there seems reason to believe that a further order had bPen given, or at least had been so understood by the men to push on as far as possible, since sup ports were following. Here arises the second topic of dispute. Supports were not following, at least they were at the respectful distance, of nearly twenty miles, and besides they was ascertained. General Pershing ru.ihed out three columns to catch hhlm. Poor p. tilde and a railroad ac cident resulted in the failure or these three iron fingers to close about Villa there. They missed him by barely twenty-four hours. Villa Warned, and Kseatass. Next pursuing columns were sent secretly through mountains to catch jhlm at Namlqulpa, about -25 miles were new troops, some of whom had , below the American border. Villa was landed In France only a few days warned and escaped through the prior io tne oame. i ney were unacr mountain toward tho eat. the direct orders of the commander-in-chief, and for the handling of them he was responsible. In England one must preserve silence on tho I question whether blame attaches to Sir John French in this matter; how ever. It Is well known ho was retired from the command In France, Just after this engagement. Apart from the dispositions made by tho High land command, however, the battal ion commander might have been ex pected to see that tho attack over the! summit of Hill 70 pussed outsldtf the! Tho fourth phase then developed, when Col. George A. Dodd, at Generul Pershing's orders, took the "string of flie. bow," a straight line south ward, west of the mountains, while Villa was taking the "arc of tho bow," ti lenger route east of the mountains. This surmise of tho American staff proved correct, enabling Dodd to strike Villa as the latter rounded up at Guerrero, March 28. Throughout every one of thee movements the Americans received no guidance from Carranza military rnen, and lack of "The Highlanders formed a mad j V!,L" 1 1 ' " salient with no supports on north or ! ng oh jo ljmt the pos- HokIii lTesKMlt .Sla( After Guerrero, began the present stage, when It was learned that Villa's bodvguard. and almost surely Villa himself, (had started southeastward from Guerrero. , Four small columns first entered this chaeo, one on Villa's heels, starting three days behind, and south. The last stage of the High land onslaught had been magnificent hut had not been war. When Lieu tenant Colonel SandilandA of the Camerons arrived on the hill, being the senior officer In charge, he made it big business to recall, tho vun on the advance.

It was a forlorn hope and few returned to the Hritish lines on the hill. All down the slopes toward Letis lay the Tartans, Gordons and Hlaek Watch, Scaforth and Cameron, like the drift left on the shore when the tide has ebbed. Had the Germans attacked In force the r.ritish would have been driven nut of Loos, had It not been for the Fifteenth division, which upon answering its roll call, showed the losses to be over 6,000 In dead, but it bad earned a reputation seennd to none In the Rritlsh forces. "Summing up, tho Rrltish bad a great chance of which they had fulled to take full advantage. Most of the results of the surprise had been lost during that tragic period from Sat urday at midday till noon on Monday when a few weary and broken bri gades clung heroically to an inipos- ' sible front. Mistakes were no doubt made of which future historians will have much to soy. The true signifi Miince of the battle did not lie in the ! capture of men and guns or in gains of ground. It lay in the fact that the .allies had done something which thoy I could do again.

Colonel Dodd meanwhile moved toward the vast mountain ranges in the southwest of Chihuahua, to prevent the fugitive from circling back into those almost surely safe refuges. Finally, n few days ago, when it was seen that MaJ. Frank Tompkins, leading the chase directly on Villa's trail, with only 114 men, was heading for the unfriendly ParrnI country, a fifth cavalry col umn was sent over a direct line to close tin on Tompkins' rear. The long anticipated break from Carranzlstas came at Parral on April 12. Within a few hours after that fight, four of th American columns, following the general plan, had Join ed Tompkins near Santa Crus, about fifteen miles north of Parral, mak ing a body of troops strong enough for any emergency. Dodd, with the strongest Individual column, remained in the west guard ing tho fustnesses. Fifteen hundred men comprised these flying columns when they start ed from Casus Grandes. A little more than half of them remained at the front the day of the Parral battle.

It Is just about ten years now since this country was opened for settlement and at that time the. only haihtatious were a few ranch houses scattered here, and there over the plains and cattle held full sway. There was hardly a farm or a farm house here at that time, in fad, it may be said that the nn ! of the set tling has been done in. fa P-ist six) years. Yet today there: are a touu of 500 miles of rural routes being cov ered daily, except Sunday, and so sys tematlcally have these routes been laid out that only a few farm homes are now without rural delivery serv ice. The routes, points out of which they are operated and mileage. of each, follows: Tetlco, three routes, 60, U and 33 miles: Clovis. two routes. l'U and 56 miles: Havener, one route, 28 miles; Bellview, on route. 3 4 miles; Cameron, one roufe, 28 miles; 8t.
